One place: Your guide to public services in England

Visit the Directgov website

  The area information on Oneplace comes from an evaluation of public services known as Comprehensive Area Assessment. These assessments ended in June 2010. This website covers the annual assessments first released in December 2009, and will not be updated further.

New to the Oneplace site? 

Welcome to the Oneplace website. Here you can see how local public services are performing in England, if they provide value for money and where they could improve.

The Audit Commission, Care Quality Commission, HM Inspectorates of Constabulary, Prisons and Probation and Ofsted are working together to provide an independent overview of the quality of life in your area. You can also discover how well local public organisations, such as councils and police forces work together to meet local needs.
